Leadership

The CBC PAC works to increase the number of African Americans in the U.S. Congress, support non-Black candidates that champion our interests, and promote African American participation in the political process-with an emphasis on young voters. There are currently 55 African Americans in Congress comprising the largest Congressional Black Caucus in history. With your financial support, we will continue to grow, and expand our voice in key campaigns throughout the country.
